    All that will do is drive those who want to have an abortion into the back alley to the local "butcher" who isn't qualified to treat a hang nail.

    Call me callous, but I'm not going to endorse the murder of children just to avoid some potentially negative consequences.

    I love this logic. So tell me, should the fact that I may choose to take a knife and cut your throat in a back alley be justification to take you to the vet and have you euthanized?
